“I am an invisible man. No, I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe; nor am I one of your Hollywood-movie extoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me. Like the bodiless heads you see sometimes in circus sideshows, it is as though I have been surrounded by mirrors of hard, distorting glass. When they approach me they see only my surroundings, themselves, or figments of their imagination—indeed, everything and anything except me.” - Ralph Ellison Last night, Saturday, 19th October at 10pm ET/PT, Starz Network aired the US premier of BBC produced drama 'Dancing On The Edge' starring leading man of the hour Chiwetel Ejiofor. Cunning timing on the part of the network; capitalizing wisely off the weekend US box office frenzy expected to crown Ejiofor's latest cinematic venture, the much anticipated (& tirelessly debated, if you've been paying any attention to the S&A boards this past year) '12 Years A Slave.' But, a cautionary word to the excited. 'Dancing On The Edge' may well leave you teetering on an edge - the edge of reason.

TV One has announced that it will premiere the new season of its acclaimed popular music biography series Unsung on Wednesday, October 30 at 8PM/ET, with a profile of hip-hop group Heavy D & the Boyz. Known for its thorough portraits of singers and music acts whose success or legacy in the industry was cut short due to personal crises and transformative circumstances, Unsung will highlight the rise-and-fall stories of a new group of artists in each one-hour episode, this season.“A truly unique documentary experience, this series continues to profile wildly gifted acts of the last 30 years, revisiting their career trajectories and unveiling the reasons for their apparent withdrawal from the public eye,” said D’Angela Proctor, SVP of Programming and Production for TV One. “With highly personal eyewitness accounts from the artists’ families, friends and colleagues, as well as commentary from music industry insiders, we ensure that their stories do not gounsung.”
